Titus presents „Destroy the Spot“, a new skate contest, supported by Emerica and realized with helping hands from Flatspot Magazine. The idea behind this new contest format is to find unique skatespots in various cities and allow locals or anyone else to battle it out for the best tricks and lines. There are essentially no real “judges“ or points, but rather a gathering of skateboarders seeing what’s capable at a raw street spot! The first event took place in Arnhem, which couldn´t have been a better starting point. Just arriving to the train station of this city feels like skate heaven, but after a 10 minute skate through the city, you will arrive at a one of a kind spot: the provincehuis! The first “Destroy the spot” event took place on Sunday, August 26th. Luckily, the skate spot itself was not actually “destroyed”, but a shitload of truly insane tricks went down that showcased how amazingly good the Dutch skaters are!

The idea was to start mellow and end it with bangers from two o´clock onwards. A boom box from provided some good tunes while the skaters got in a little warm up on the „stair ledges” and people started putting lines together. Ledge, barrier, flatground trick, and then stairs/gap out rail was how the flow turned out. Rob Maatmann killed it with a very fine trick selection earning him a winning spot, hands down!

After the line section was finished, the gap out rail with stairs was the next obstacle of choice. Rob killed it again, but Bert Roeterdink put down a crazy gap to front crooks and then started charging the rail switch. Gap to switch crooks was already THE banger of the day, but Bert even tried to gap out to a switch back 5-0. Unfortunately, he couldn´t roll away but was damn close. Next time Bert!

Last spot of the event was a gap over stairs and a similar but even bigger gap out rail at the same plaza. The gap was sessioned heavily, including Rob with a backside 360, a switch heelflip, and a gap to 5-0 on the rail. Titus flow rider Stefan Schuring came in hot with a huge front shuv-it but rolled his ankle on a varial heel attempt. Ewoud Breukink had no problem clearing the gap with a frontside flip and earned his place as MVP for shredding so hard on all three spots. However, the winning trick was once again a gnarly rail trick, gap to backside lipslide by Teun Janssen. Everybody seemed super hyped with the turnout of the event and we’re already excited to see which city gets picked next. Utrecht? Den Haag? Only time will tell, stay tuned!

Titus Locals Only Competition Finale 2019 | Europapark Rust | Titus

Titus – Follow us | | | As in previous years, the final of the Titus Locals Only Competition took place in Rust as part of the German Skateboarding Championship. As always, the starting field consisted of the winners of the 25 competitions, which were held by the Titus Stores in June 2019. This results in an extremely colourful starting field from all regions of Germany and it is always very interesting to see how high the level of unsponsored skaters in Germany is. As the “Locals” in Rust are completely taken care of from travel to the event, accommodation and catering, almost all local winners of last summer found their way to the Breisgau and the COS course. There, on the 1st Advent 2019, the title of “German Amateur Champion in Skateboarding” was at stake – and indeed at a level that left you amazed! Wie schon in den vergangenen Jahren fand im Rahmen der Deutschen Meisterschaft im Skateboarding in Rust auch das Finale der Titus Locals Only Competition statt. Das Starterfeld setzte sich wie immer aus den Gewinnern der 25 Wettbewerbe zusammen, die von den Titus Stores im Juni 2019 ausgetragen wurden. Somit ergibt sich ein äußerst buntes Starterfeld aus allen Regionen Deutschlands zusammen und es ist immer sehr interessant anzuschauen, wie hoch das Level der ungesponsorten Skater in Deutschland ist. Da die „Locals“ in Rust von Anfahrt über Unterkunft bis Verpflegung komplett umsorgt werden, fanden so ziemlich alle lokalen Gewinner des vergangenen Sommers den Weg in den Breisgau und auf den COS Parcours. Dort ging es am 1. Advent 2019 dann um den Titel „Deutscher Amateurmeister im Skateboarding“ – und das in der Tat auf einem Level, das einen staunen ließ!
